Never Take the Hind Shoe From a Mule
Tune-"Never Take the Horseshoe from the Door."
Written and sung hy Sam Devere.

There's a story handed down from old Methuselem,
I learned it when a little boy at school,
Tnat you'll make a big mistake, and don't forget it.
When you bother 'round the hind shoe on a mule.

Never tickle a mule when he's reposing.
If you disturb his slumbers you're a fool;
If you don't want to visit the undertakers,
Never take the hind shoe from the mule.

The business end of a mule is mighty ticklish,
He never misses fire as a rule;
If you don't want to be shovelled up in pieces.
Why, keep a respectful distance from the mule.

If you touch his caudle appendage you're a goner.
Asleep or awake you'll find he's not a fool;
Oh, you'll think you were struck by seven kinds of lightning,
If you bother with the hind part of a mule.

When you think the animal's getting old and feeble,
Then never, never touch him as a rule,
Or he'll kick you full of holes in seven seconds.
Trust him not, there's mischief in the mule.

Oh, you'll want a chest protector on your eyebrow,
And laid upon a ton of ice to cool;
You'll be too much broke up to join the angels,
Never take the hind shoe from a mule.
